At about 2:10 into FOTD Jerry sings "took my 15 dollar bill".I just thought that was odd and kind of funny.

this is listed at the grateful dead lyric and song finder website...

Notes
(a) in very early versions (eg 3 April 1970), Jerry sang "I set out from Reno, I was trailed by thirty hounds.
(b) in some early versions, Jerry sang a different verse:

I went to the levee but the devil caught my scent
So I coughed two hundred bills to pay back what was lent

(c) in early versions (eg 3 April 1970), Jerry sang "sheriff's on my tail" rather than "... on my trail"

Robert Hunter wrote another verse that he performed himself (eg on "Jack O' Roses"). See also below for the evolution of Robert Hunter's lyrics into their final form.

You can borrow from the devil, you can borrow from a friend
But the devil will give you twenty, when your friend got only ten

a dime...A DIME? for a cup of coffee. Obviously these folks had never heard of Starbucks. But then "he asked me for $3.48, $3.48 for a cup of coffee" just doens't have the same ring to it.

Are there any adjusted for inflation versions out there?

"We used to play for palladium, now we play for life."

Seeing as how the gold and silver markets are probably the most manipulated PMs out there.

well nothing makes sense (hey that's you!) at Starf*cks
when the SHORTEST coffee you can get is called "tall".

I like to mess with them to when they ask how I like my
coffee, and I tell them, " I just take it URBAN ".

yes. I used to tell them I like my coffee like I like my
woman: Strong, rich, black, aromatic, hot, and robust,
with a little bit of booze in it.
But that became a mouthful...

I would never be able to pull a date but there's definitely some 80's versions of Brown Eyed Women where Jerry ups the cost of the moonshine to 10 dollars instead of 2.

I was just listening to 6/7/70 the other day, and I have to say that, for my money, the peppy old acoustic versions of this song are about as great as anything else the band ever produced.

I like the early acoustic versions also.The band does a nice take on the slower version on 6/7/77.I enjoy the slower style one's also,they have a majestic feel.

I like the slower ones as well - the one from 12/26/79 (DP5)grows in stages into a really powerful climax. Best part of the first set by a country mile.
